    no one is 'forced into the subservience of employment'... unless they want to eat, drink, have clothing, a place to live, transportation, etc etc etc.

    I'm starting to like you
    Most poor people are poor, because they don't have the gumption to get out and get a job. What makes anyone think they have enough sap to revolt, and actually achieve a positive outcome?

    No one in this country is, "forced into the subservience of employment". That's plumb rediculous.

    That's correct. Those born without wealth are born in a state of subserviance to those with wealth.

    It's all of the tyranny you oppose from government, except that it comes from the ruling elites.

    Life is unfair

    that is not an excuse to support a government that tries to make it so at the expense of constitutional rights

    It's a perfect reason, actually.

    Unlike you and your Constitution-fellating, right-wing friends, I support true liberty. Liberty that is not based on how much wealth you have. Life is unfair under capitalism; that's why the time has come for alternatives.

    nah you don't like liberty, you hate it. you want to force people who are winners to lose so the losers feel better and people like you get power doing so . Life is unfair under any system but yours creates a leviathan that can kill millions to create your concept of fairness while mine merely requires nothing more than benign neglect.

    Try your alternatives-maybe you and Haymarket can start the peoples' revolution against capitalism

    you can contemplate how long that will last

    Decades and decades, if history is any indicator.

    You can spout all your strawman nonsense about "forcing people to lose," we know why your rhetoric is high on paranoia and low on argumentation. It's because you're afraid that the oppressed worker will revolt against his chains, and you will be expropriated in the process. You don't love liberty; you fear it, because true liberty has men like you in its crosshairs.
